Nigel Hanbury, Chief Executive, commented:

"As the only quoted consolidator of private capital at Lloyd's, Helios offers a unique opportunity for growth and returns from exposure to the Lloyd's market through targeted acquisitions of capacity on the better quality syndicates. We are delighted with the improvement in the results for both underwriting years and in the increased outperformance of the portfolio against the Lloyds' market"
